Subject [jira] Commented: (CONFIGURATION-345) PropertiesConfiguration does not use the default encoding to load files
Date Mon, 03 Nov 2008 11:28:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-345?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12644692#action_12644692
] 

Guillaume Darmont commented on CONFIGURATION-345:
-------------------------------------------------

That's exactly the point.
If I have an ISO-8859-1 properties file (as it must be) but the current JVM default encoding
is UTF-8, the 3 constructors above will use UTF-8 since they call the load() method (_via_
super(...)) *before* the block setEncoding(DEFAULT_ENCODING).

I'm not used to work with initialization block so I checked the behavior using the debugger
to understand why the "setEncoding(DEFAULT_ENCODING)" wasn't called before "load()".

Hope this helps.

in constructors.
> So when using either PropertiesConfiguration(java.io.File file), PropertiesConfiguration(java.lang.String
fileName) or PropertiesConfiguration(java.net.URL url), the super() statement is called, and
it loads the file without the default encoding.
